In the Valley of Decision
The three angels' messages are the final warning given to this world.
The heart of the messages is to do with worship.
And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
- Revelation 14:6-13 (KJV)
In other words, you either:
- Worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters, or
- Worship the beast and his image
Worship is closely related to commandments.
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
- John 14:15 (KJV)
But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
- Matthew 15:9 (KJV)
So then, you either keep:
- The commandments of God (the Ten Commandments), or
- The commandments of men
God has appointed a set day for worshiping.
For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.
- Isaiah 66:22-23 (KJV)
Does the beast have a set day for worshiping also?
The beast is a reference to the Roman Catholic Church (antichrist). They are luciferians, and they worship the sun.
They keep the Sunday.
So now then there are two worship days:
If you keep the Sabbath (Seal of God), it is a sign that you worship God.
If you keep the Sunday (Mark of the beast), it is a sign that you worship satan.
The Seal and mark are not literal, but are spiritual in nature, e.g. they are made in the forehead (where the decisions are made).
|Seal of God
|Beast (satan really)
|Mark of the beast
The last days will be all about the Ten Commandments.
Sabbath versus Sunday.
Seal versus mark.
